Golf Asia - - GOLFING SCENE -

The 113-year-old golf club’s two-day event saw around 270 golfers tee­ing off, as well as the par­tic­i­pa­tion of gen­er­ous cor­po­rate part­ners, spon­sors and donors, in aid of 10 ben­e­fi­cia­ries in Sin­ga­pore.

Dr Lam Pin Min, Se­nior Min­is­ter of State, Min­istry of Health and Min­istry of Trans­port, graced the char­ity golf event’s Gala Din­ner as the Guest-of-hon­our. A high­light of the evening was a spe­cial per­for­mance by Sin­ga­porean prodigy clas­si­cal soloist, Lau­ren Yeo, who helped raise S$10,000 with her en­core song at the Gala Din­ner. The 14-year-old has hith­erto charmed au­di­ences the world over with her voice, and won nu­mer­ous ac­co­lades since the ten­der age of nine.

This year’s fundrais­ing event rep­re­sents the club’s fifth con­sec­u­tive year in man­ag­ing to raise over a mil­lion dol­lars for ben­e­fi­cia­ries. The $1,037,996 raised was unau­dited and be­fore the de­duc­tion of ex­penses. A do­na­tion cheque of $93,888 was pre­sented to the 10 ben­e­fi­cia­ries, with their rep­re­sen­ta­tives in at­ten­dance at the Gala Din­ner in the evening.
